Dependable Strengths Workshop: Networking and Job Search

2 day workshop + one follow-up appointment
Friday and Saturday, June 11-12 - Register NOW!

Need answers to the big questions about where you are headed next?
Not sure what kind of job you are interested in or how to find it?
Are you graduating this year and lack the know-how or confidence to network?

This two day workshop helps you to do all of these! Unlike other career assessments and workshops, you'll be able to assess your strengths and identify what you enjoy, things that you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride. It motivates you to succeed. Ultimately by learning more about yourself through this process, you open up new opportunities.
The focus in this workshop is a non-traditional job search process. Through guided group discussions, participants will:

* Identify what you are good at and what you love to do
* Learn to articulate your worth to an employer
* Learn to make contacts whenever you may want them
* Succeed in interviews
* Work with a support team to increase self-confidence

The workshop is designed for all levels from freshmen to graduate students and alumni.
The registration fee for current UMBC Students is $50. Details and the online registration form can be found at


Graduating Students – Fill Us In & Win!

May Grads: What Are You Doing after Graduation?

UMBC has begun asking May and August 2010 graduates to contribute to the Graduating Student Report so the campus can get a better sense of the post graduation plans of the Class of 2010. Check out last year's results here. All students who complete the report will be entered into a prize drawing.

Graduating students can contribute to the report via the link in the personal email they received or can contribute directly to the report by visiting: .

Spring and Summer 2010 Employment Survey

Keep your eye out for an email containing the link to the Spring and Summer 2010 Employment Survey that was launched May 4, 2010. The Career Services and Shriver Centers are interested in learning about the part-time jobs/internships you held during the spring semester and your plans for the upcoming summer months.

PNC Bank has generously donated two sets of four box seat tickets to Oriole games (each set valued at $200). Complete the brief survey and earn a chance to be one of the two randomly selected winners!

How to Get Job Search Feedback You Can Use

If you want to find out what prospective employers think of you, don't wait till you don't get a job and then ask the recruiter for feedback. It's a litigious society, so they won't share it.

The recruiter will say something generic like how much they liked you but the field was just so competitive. Furthermore, at this point, you are already closed out for the job. You can't use any feedback you do get because your next interviews will be for different jobs with different players. Instead of generic feedback received too late, you need to get personal and specific feedback that you can act upon before a decision is made.

In order to do that, ask your interviewer these tough questions.

Avoid Making Careless Job Search Mistakes

Here we are just a few weeks from graduation and although companies are hiring a bit more this year, it's still a tough market, according to CareerBuilder's annual job forecast.

How many graduates will make careless and thoughtless mistakes trying to find their first full-time job? It's downright shocking the blunders many applicants make when looking for work. They should know better.

On Thursday, May 27 at noon Michelle Singletary, Washington Post Columnist, and Ellen Gordon Reeves, author of Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview?, will be hosting a live online chat. They invite new graduates with questions about the job search process to attend. It can be found at
